Combination of MOFs and zeolites for mixed-matrix membranes.

Mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) were prepared by combinations of two different kinds of porous fillers [metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) HKUST-1 and ZIF-8, and zeolite silicalite-1] and polysulfone. In the search for filler synergy, the MMMs were applied to the separation of CO(2)/N(2), CO(2)/CH(4), O(2)/N(2), and H(2)/CH(4) mixtures and we found important… CONTINUE READING
